yup way out, if you look at it, you could get yourself a Murcielago(285) + F430(225) + DB9(190) and be around what you could spend for a F or CCX..

The twin-turbo Vipers are starting to look good. Way cheaper, and 1000bhp doesn't sound too distant.

yeah but the viper doesnt have that finesse, its crude and just plain harsh..

anyhow you can TT or 4Ts a civic to go faster, but thats not the point...

and if you are comparing like that, then the Z06 blows everything out of the water..it is 25k cheaper and is even a better bargin(as is it is, it does everything better and is still more luxurious and costs 25k USD cheaper than a viper)

True, the 'Vette is now better value for money.

But hey, a v1p3r's a Viper, and you can't argue with that.

Cant argue with that. the Z06 may be good. but the Viper is a classic.

naaaahhh!! if you have to say anything Vette is a classic, viper is new boy in town, remember when both were conceived?? viper in the early 90s where as vette in the early 50s(40 yrs before), so which one is classic

anyhow..viper sure is a viper... no denying but unfortunetly its dying..if you have not checked the status of vipers lately please do so, they are having a hard time selling any...most sit on the dealer lot for months before being sold and are being sold for 9k USD off even the new coupe..where as the vette is selling pretty much everyone they make and the Z06 is commanding anywhere from 5k to 25k more than the MSRP and in the begining even upto 30k..and this is when they made 6500 Z06s last year and about 1500 vipers, now those figures seem ever more bizzare..
